Securing your Travellers Cheques

Some simple security tips...

  • Sign your cheques as soon as you get them, so you’re covered if they’re lost or stolen
  • Keep a note of the serial numbers in the top right corner of the cheques – you’ll need these if they’re lost or stolen too
  • Keep this information in a separate place and take it with you when you travel
  • When you’re ready to use the cheques, sign again in the bottom left corner in front of the person accepting them
